Media Roundtable: Dr. Christine Ford: I'm '100 percent' sure that Brett Kavanaugh assaulted me

Sep 27, 2018

 On the next Your Call’s media roundtable, we’ll discuss coverage of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Dr. Blasey Ford has accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were in high school.

What did we learn from the hearing? And what do we need to know about the Federalist Society and the Judicial Crisis Network, two groups that have spent millions to ensure Kavanaugh is confirmed? What do these groups and Republicans have to gain with Brett Kavanaugh on the court?
